Watershed Food & Drink Week
Four stories. Four dishes. One unique dining experience.
Four (the French word for oven) consists of a four-course tasting menu. Rather than being derived from a normal culinary perspective where the food is chosen by complementary pairings, Jasmine's menu has been crafted using several participants’ food tales. Each raconteur will share his or her food story either through film, sound recording or live story telling. Diners are invited to eat the dish that coincides with the narrative, the accompanying soundscapes and projections serving to enhance the diners' experience and help to retell the food stories in an immersive, more encompassing way.
So come and try some tasty fire bread and get immersed in a tale about a young man who was lost in the woods; listen to a story about about someone's early childhood food experiences involving petit pois; try tacos whilst hearing an insightful account told by a mother and daughter about their love of Mexican cuisine and what it means in their family; and to top it off, why not try some beans for desert? - an unusual ending we grant you - but you’ll have to wait and see what this particular story entails!
